4 GET IN THE KNOW ABOUT SPF50+

Diabetic Living - - Good Advice -

ONE It doesn’t pro­vide twice as much pro­tec­tion as

an SPF30+. The two ac­tu­ally de­liver very sim­i­lar pro­tec­tion against UVB rays, the va­ri­ety that’s the main cause of skin da­m­age and skin can­cer.

TWO You need to ap­ply it prop­erly to get that level

of pro­tec­tion. Use one tea­spoon of sun­screen per body part, ap­ply it at least 20 min­utes be­fore you head out­side and then reap­ply ev­ery two hours. THREE You should choose a wa­ter-re­sis­tant one. Yes, that’s even if you’re not go­ing swim­ming. Sweat­ing can re­duce the ef­fec­tive­ness of non­wa­ter-re­sis­tant sun­screen, re­gard­less of the SPF.
